Firstly thanks to all who took part in Swimathon and helped us raise a fantastic £1486 for the two cancer charities. It again proved what a great club we have.
Thanks for the help on the day before, during the day and especially for the cakes! I believe that Amy’s Rocky Road was to die for!!
Pictures from the day can be viewed here:
The new club causal wear is in and is looking great…. If having now seen it you want some, let me know and we can raise another order. Its all about getting the club seen and known at these events.
So we are now into the summer season and we have a few events coming up:
Killer Mile Mow Cop – Thursday 9th May
So far we have 6 club members running this famous race, rated one of the toughest in the world! But don’t let that put you off, last year there were walkers, runners and young, old and even a storm trooper. It’s a great evening with the option of a cheeky pint on the way home!
Dougie Mac Bike Ride – Sunday 19th May
We are hoping to have riders in both the 27 and 64 mile route. We have not got the miles in the legs for the 100!!!
Please let me know if you are entering so we can all meet up and ride together.
Staffordshire Relays – Wednesday 12th June
Another great local event taking place at the county showground, we had one team in last year. Teams of 4 each running 2 miles each. So far I have enough people entering to do two teams, but can you please confirm if you are wanting to run by the end of Tuesday 7th May so we can get the entries in and sort payment. I recon we can get 4!!!
Cholmondeley Castle – Swim, Run or Tri – 21st to 23rd June
The big event of the summer, choose your discipline, enter and enjoy. Be it a swim, a run or a triathlon. Again please let me know if you have entered so we know who to expect, who to shout for and when to be there to ensure full support is given. Adults and kids! The kids events are particularity good with Castle Traithlon as they do a proper in water mass start giving the kids a true experience.
Parogon Gazebo will hopefully be up!!
Camping, motor homes and caravans book onto the Bickerton Poacher Pub site – we will be there Friday evening through to Sunday evening (I am awaiting conformation on if we need to pay for Sunday night)
Henley Club to Pub – Saturday 20th July
This event is now full and operating a waiting list, but we have a few coming down to support and enjoy the social. Why not jump on the bandwagon!!
With all please let us know what you plans are!!!!
Looking to the future we have been made aware of an open water swimming festival in Majorca that takes place over the May half term each year. Warm, clear sea swimming with distances to suit all up to a 10K!!!
At this stage we are looking for expressions of interest and possible numbers. If it is viable, we will then explore accommodation and flight options as I am sure we could get some good block booking deals.
Again please advise with the number of adults / children who would be going. We would make this a full family event!
